A New Aparatcs rna HrATiHO Hospitals.
We have taken occasion to examine a new arrange
ment for heating purposes which haa been intro
duced Into one of the wards of t he Armory Square
hospital by Dr. Bliss, surgeon in charge. It Is a
simple contrivance, and consists of a furnace, (for
wood fire,) In each end of the building, with a pipe
about one foot In diameter, extending, Just be
neath the flojr, the entire length of the ward, with
a t ery large pipe, or flue, in the centre of the
building, extending up through the root By thla
Rrucess, the offensive gas, produced by coal, is rot
in rid of, the stoves are out of the way, and a
pure atmosphere, with a healthy, steady heat, la
constantly supplied to the Inmate..
We hope to aee this Improvementlntroduoed Into
all the barracks and hospitals, as we are satisfied of
lta great utility and aupcrlorlty In regard to health.
We are Informed, also, that this method of heating
by wood fire actually costs less than by any other

had heretofore been wrapped In uncertainty.

The many brave and gallant charges made
by Colonel Hatch, with his Second Iowa and

Colonel natch was one of the Clay Gnsrd, who
defended Washington until the first troops ar
rived, lie has pledged hla life to preserve and
defend the Union. No braver officer can be

of which he hss so long and ao well represent
